The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, agreed with the call of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Bola that the campaign ought to be founded on what will propel the development, progress and stability of Nigeria.
Tinubu’s campaign organisation on Wednesday said Obi’s supporters are slandering the former Lagos State Governor and charged him to call them to order.
Obi in a statement signed by his Media Adviser, Valentine Obienyem, Wednesday, said Tinubu’s statement reflected what he stands for.
He pushed on the need for all Nigerians to halt from spreading lies, malice and denigrating other candidates.
Obi noted assuming supporters were aware of this, a few articles published in certain newspapers against Obi could never have been published, including those with offensive titles.
The statement partly read, “On the alleged fake letter from the President of Ghana and the alleged request of 50 Billion Naira monthly payment, Obienyem said that while Obi was not bothered about their authenticity, it was wickedness to link them to his supporters, insisting that any publication from Obi’s group was always properly signed and the place it was coming from very clearly spelt out.
“We know that things are not well in Nigeria. We know of the agitations in different parts of the country, our principal has always said what he would do with such organizations to stop their agitation and bring them back to Nigeria as one happy family. Rather than others say what they will do, they are here creating more problems by trying vainly and wickedly to link their fellow contestants to some of those organisations.
“He expressed happiness that Nigerians knew the truth and that such gimmicks used to deceive them would no longer work.”
